First of all, many PIOs still complain that performing statutory obligation of providing information is vexatious.

With due respects, it is not our judgment, and it may be cent per cent true, and in all such earlier cases several representations were made to ICs about this cantankerous applicants, and CIC  past  IC Sri SA, Professor in law  has stated that those applications be clubbed together and chronologically stating rti applications, answers provided should be duly tabulated, and they should upload such details and display such report also in PIO premises and mark this as copy to IC.

Recent Delhi HC order is making many rounds.   Karnataka HC has categorically ruled that RTI Act bars multiple applicants.

Please search in the forum under CIC decisions and follow the laid down procedure as stated in CIC decision and also go through recent Delhi HC judgmen that was uploaded by this forum in twitter.

Thanks for the info, but wish to add performing the duty for public interest is RTI says and which PIO shall perform but kepp on performing the duty for only one applicant is what is creating problems.

As informed, will go through CIC decisions and once again thanks for your valuable time and inputs.

RTI never says any purpose or objective or public interest.

The issue is performing the official duties by the designated officials under a statute.

Since 15 years, many PIOs are reporting the same problem/issue and I have yet to find a satisfied applicant by PIO.

As the same issue was dealt in past CIC decisions, the guidance was provided as information is a right and the act never bars applicant filing multiple applications.
